‘Always hurting each other, If it ain’t one thing it’s another. When the world is down on you, love’s somewhere around’… Joy & Pain

Here are some tips on how to make your resolutions successful for 2021.
- Don’t over sell yourself, keep it simple
- Don’t focus on the problem, focus on the solution
Don’t over sell yourself by making a long list of resolutions. People tend to make a long list of things they want to change about themselves and they get overwhelmed with the challenges. Once you get overwhelmed with a challenge; you get frustrated and you tend to give up. Well let’s keep it simple. Focus on 1 or 2 things that you would like to work on to better your life. 1 or 2 things that’s it. If by the 6th month mark you have accomplished those 2 goals, you can re-evaluate and add another resolution before the year is done.
Don’t focus on the problem you want to fix or change, focus on the solution. If your resolution is to lose weight; The focus should not be geared toward eliminating junk foods but on eating healthier and working out. If you are wanting to buy a new car, maybe try saving more money than you spend and not take out that high interest rate loan.
